Winter official starts this weekend. Brrr… I’m not looking forward to the next few months of freezing cold weather. I’m NOT a fan of summer (I hate heat), but at least it’s not freezing cold.
This time of year, a lot of people travel. They travel for fun. They travel to visit family and friends for the holiday. They travel for business.
If you are planning a trip that involves spending time on the beach, or if you live where you can go to the beach any time of the year, you’ll want to check out this post.
My family and I enjoy going to the beach. We try and visit the New Jersey shore at least once a year (in the summer) to spend the day on the beach. We get there exactly when the beach opens and the life guards are on duty (10:00 AM). We stay there for a few hours, then head home. Doing it this way we get a prime spot on the beach, and we avoid the crowds. We also avoid the traffic on the way home (leaving before rush hour). It helps to go during the week too, when many people are at work and dreaming of being on the beach.
There are a few things about the beach we don’t like;
- Garbage on the beach
- A lot of seaweed
- Rough waves
- Inconsiderate beach goers
And our #1 dislike about the beach – Sand! Sand gets on EVERYTHING. Even days, weeks or months after coming back from the beach we still find sand around our home and in our car.
Here is a great tip for keeping sand off your skin – apply baby powder to your skin. There is something about the baby powder that makes sand less likely to stick to you. Try it. It works. It’s magic!
I wish there was a way to have the stand stop sticking to your beach towel and/or beach blanket. You can shake it off, but sand often sticks to it. That is the reason why most of the sand gets dragged back into your home.
There is an Australian company called Tesalate, that sells an innovative beach towel. It’s also great for to use for other activities, such as yoga and enjoying a picnic (their Towel for Two is large enough to use as a picnic or beach blanket, as well as a towel). Their towels
Tesalate towels are made from a cutting edge fabric technology. They are made with AbsorbLite™ fabric, which helps the towels to dry rapidly compared to standard beach towels. Tesalate towels can also absorb a whopping 1 (33 oz.) liter of water. I doubt anyone is THAT wet, but it good to know they can absorb that much.
The best part about these towels is that sand does not stick to it.
Here is some more information about the brand, Tesalate.
Tesalate has dominated the U.S. and European markets as well. In fact, their Facebook page has exploded to close to a million organic members. As far as customer feedback is concerned, the average rating of their reviews is 4.9 stars. They’ve got over 21,000 organic reviews to date, which you can read on their website. They are, by far, the most reviewed beach towel in the world.
Tesalate has been featured in media platforms like Vogue, Elle, Harper’s, Better Homes and Gardens, Buzzfeed, USA Today, Business Insider, The Sun, Daily Mail, Lonely Planet, Conde Nast Traveller, Good Housekeeping, Travel + Leisure, Reader’s Digest, Frommer’s, Australian Geographic and many others. They have also appeared on Jetstar, Qantas and Air Canada airline in-flight magazines as well as top-ranking blogs.
They were also featured on U.S. TV last year – Today, Fox 8 News and Doctors TV.
I was sent one of the towels to review. Sadly, I didn’t have the opportunity to put the towel to the “sand test.” I’m in New York. The closest form of sand for me right now is the stuff the local Department of Transportation spreads on the roads when it snows. That is not really something I can test with.
I received the Bohemian Towel for Two. I like the “towel for two” towels because they can also serve as a beach blanket, and because I’m a “plus size” woman and I like the idea of having an ample sized towel.
What I can tell you is that this towel has very vibrant colors. Sadly, you can’t really notice that in the photo I took. The photo does not do this colorful towel/blanket justice. It’s a lot nicer in person.
The towel arrived inside a branded drawstring bag (pictured below), which is great to use to store the towel in when not in use. It also makes is easier to take with you to the beach because you can hang the bag from your tote bag or beach chair when you take it onto the beach.
I like that it’s compact when folded and very light weight.
Like I said, I really didn’t have the chance to try out the towel (yet). I can only tell you what I think of it thus far. In the summer, when we have the chance to go to the beach I will be taking this towel with me and I will update this post at that time.
With 21,000+ reviews and receiving an average of 4.9 out of 5 stars, there is a lot to be said about this towel as far as it’s look, feel and effectiveness.
Not only is the Tesalate towel great for you, but it would also make a great gift for beach goers, travelers and others.
